Leader of Opposition in Maharashtra Assembly Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil submitted a breach of privilege notice against Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, accusing him of making a false statement over allegations against “tainted ministers” including labour minister Sambhaji Patil Nilangekar.
“We (have) submitted a breach of privilege notice to the Speaker Haribhau Bagde,” Vikhe Patil said.
He alleged that regarding Nilangekar and other ministers, against whom the opposition charged with corruption or involvement in criminal cases, the Chief Minister, while defending his colleagues, gave false information to the House.
“As the BJP-led government hasn’t taken action against the tainted ministers despite plenty of proof, we have no option but to approach the court,” he added.
“When the special investigation team was about to arrest Jaikumar Raval, who is now a cabinet minister, why did the CM, displaying alacrity, hand over the probe to state CID,” Vikhe Patil asked.
